Nicolas Claxton, the 6-foot-11 slender forward, who entered the NBA draft earlier this month, has received an invitation to the NBA Draft Combine May 15-19 in Chicago.
The sophomore led Georgia in scoring, rebounding and blocks.
Claxton was a bright spot in coach Tom Crean’s first season, averaging 13 points, 8.6 rebounds and 1.8 blocks. He shot 46% from the floor but only 28% from 3-point range. He weighs 220 pounds and may need to add bulk to compete near the basket in the NBA.
The NBA Draft will be held Thursday, June 20.
